Putting It On the Table: 30 years deep

Harrah s logo Harrah’s Cherokee Casino is the premier sponsor for MANNA FoodBank’s Blue Jean Ball, which will take over the MANNA campus along the Swannanoa River on June 1 from 7-11pm. This year’s 1980’s theme, Putting it on the Table, commemorates 30 years of community outreach, collaboration and service. Rev up your 80’s attire, tease your hair a little higher, or nail that Van Halen “Jump” with a DJ spinning your favorite 80’s hits.
